To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My daughter (9) really really really loves these books and this new one has in just a day been read from cover to cover. Old characters are still there and a few new ones too! The read is easy, with great twists and turns in the plot and the illustrations are great (as always). Even better is the fact that the author is very approachable on Twitter / Facebook and quickly responds to any questions, pictures or observations my daughter wants to share... this in itself is fantastic and we support all and any books by her!
My 7 year old daughter loves this series and has had her head in this book since she received it. It kept her bed this morning, reading until she finished it. The story made her both laugh out loud and cry!
